I'm A Celebrity star AJ Pritchard risked causing a camp row on the show on Tuesday night, as he exposed Shane Richie's lack of cleaning when it came to the meal pans.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star aired his disapproval of Shane's washing up in front of most of the camp, who seemed to feel a little awkward.
Just a day after the pair clashed over the pots not being cleaned, AJ was delegated the job of cleaning them in the latest episode – as usual cleaner Shane was out of camp.
He headed off with Giovanna Fletcher to do the latest Castle Coin Challege.
But in his absence, AJ repeatedly commented on how much cleaner the pans were with him doing the job.

Campmates began to pick up on the jibes, with Beverley Callard asking: "So Shane’s done a very bad job?"
The others were seen looking around, unsure how to react as AJ continued to show them how cleaner they were after his go, than when Shane did it.
He showed his silver pans, compared to the greased up ones Shane had done – leaving viewers a little divided.
Speaking in the Telegraph, AJ wasted no time in suggesting Shane hadn't been cleaning them, as he commented on their food having a weird taste.

He said: "Oh my god, no wonder our rice has some weird flavour to it."
It didn't stop there either, as AJ again brought it up to his fellow campers, suggesting he did it better than Shane.
He told them, ahead of Shane returning, "If you’re going to do it, do the job properly."
AJ claimed he was better at the washing up
Heading back to the Telegraph, he said: “I’ve cleaned the whole thing, they look brand new.
"You could sell them right now and I think they could put a bit more blood sweat and tears into washing up, it’s a bit dirty."
Victoria later told Giovanna how AJ had spent all day cleaning the pans – but Shane heard and gave an awkward looked.
Viewers were divided though, as many were disgusted over the state of the pans.
One fan wrote: "Those pans were gross Shane definitely only been doing half a job it's lucky they haven't got ill."
Another said: "Those pans looked disgusting. What has Shane been doing??"
Some hit out at AJ though, not happy with him for going on about the dirty pans.
